Three years after a devastating earthquake struck Haiti, taking more than 200,000 lives and making 1.5 million people homeless, the EU continues to help the struggling country with an additional €30.5 million in humanitarian funding.
In the EU27, 53% of enterprises from industry and services reported innovation activity between 2008 and 2010. Among the EU27 Member States, the highest proportions of enterprises with innovation activity were recorded in Germany (79% of enterprises), Luxembourg (68%), Belgium (61%), Portugal, Sweden and Ireland (all 60%), and the lowest in Bulgaria (27%), Poland (28%), Latvia (30%), Romania and Hungary (both 31%).
The European Commission has allocated €65 million to support Kosovo's efforts to implement its EU-reform agenda. The funds will be used for reforms of the justice and public administration systems, investments in education and regional development, and to provide housing and job opportunities for Roma, Ashkali and Egyptian families who are currently living in lead-contaminated camps. They will also help boost private sector development by providing support for SMEs and strengthening Kosovo's trade capacities.
